I booked my cruise today. Halle-frickin’-lujah!
Yes, from January 28 – February 4, 2007, I will be aboard the “Freedom of the Seas” for a beautiful cruise of the Carribean seas. I finally got the $500 deposit culled together and did it.
I’m all excited. And it’s almost a full year away!!
I’ll be rooming with my chorus friend Rob (who a certain blogger has a major crush on, by the way!) and will be travelling with most of my dearest friends. It’s the vacation that dreams are made of. I’m ecstatic. 🙂
The cruise my friends are going on is an Atlantis Cruise upon a brand-new Royal Carribean liner called “Freedom of the Seas. The cruise will be from January 27 – February 4, 2007 and is being billed as the first all-gay cruise on the largest cruise ship in the world.
Right on. 3,000+ gay boys (and probably a good number of gay girls) on one huge ship. I. Am. So. There.
I still have a book a flight to Miami, where the cruise starts, and back… but I have time to save up those pennies. At least the payments are only $100/month until it’s paid off. I can deal with that. 🙂
So the cruise starts in Miami, then docks at San Juan, Puerto Rico for a day. After we leave Puerto Rico, we head to Phillipsburg, St. Maarten for another day; then we leave for Labadee, Hispianola for a final day before departing for Miami. In between each port is a full day at sea.
And the ship… My GOD the ship… first, look at this thing (click on the image to enlarge):
It’s gorgeous isn’t it? Now I won’t have a view or anything in my room– too damn expensive. And besides, how much time will I want to spend in my room when there is so much to do: Fabulous shows, men in jogging shorts, shopping, men in swim trunks, waterparks, men on deck chairs, ice arena, men in hot tubs, pools, men all over the place, sunbathing… you get the idea. 🙂
And add to that the fact that some fabulous celebrity might be on board to enjoy it all with you… and put on a great show while you’re at it… they say that past celebs have included Joan Rivers, Rosie ODonnell, Margaret Cho, Blondie, Patti Lupone, Chaka Khan, Bruce Vilanch, and Roseanne. Sign me up for some Chaka Khan and Margaret Cho, thankyouverymuch… 🙂
And of course, need I mention the men again?
OK fine, I will. 🙂
Yeah… that’s what I’m talkin’ about.
OK time to start losing some weight… 🙂
